To be eligible to compete in the Olympic Tennis Event at Rio 2016, all athletes must be in good standing with their National Association and the International Tennis Federation.

In addition, athletes must meet the minimum requirements regarding participation in Davis Cup and Fed Cup. Players are required to be part of a final nominated Davis Cup or Fed Cup team on a minimum of three occasions in the four-year Olympic cycle.

However, for those nations competing in the Zone Group round-robin format for at least three years of the four-year cycle the minimum nomination requirement is two occasions, as it is for players who have represented their nation 20 or more times. All players must be nominated at least once in 2015/16.

Well, drama and matches will be shorter in Rio. There will be played tie-break in every set (if needed) so the matches like Federer-Del Potro in London will be past :(

Men's singles final remains best of five match. Thirdset in mixed doubles will be played as match tie break.

No points for atp/wta ranking,so I expect a least 5 more solid players at least.
